, a lot to deliver on the ticket, out there, active, and former speaker newt gingrich did the same thing two weeks ago, gave interviews. they are at the convention. i have not seen congressman paul yet do any events. [laughter] but rand paul has been supportive. governor perry has done a lot for him, helped him raise money, welcomed him to texas. i have not seen herman cain do anything yet. generally speaking, i have seen the two other finalists newt gingrich and rick santorum visible, and i have heard the other ones have been or will with the exception of congressman paul, but rand paul is doing the right thing. i'm optimistic there's not division in the party. >> hello, thank you for what you do in our lives and in so many ways. i wanted you to elaborate on what was mentioned on your show today. i'm i literate about this issue having to do with the -- this jimmy carter appointed judge making a decision. please, start with square one and take us through. >> sure. >> thank you. >> after the obamacare case was decided by the supreme court and the law was upheld, cases challenging other pa
. gingrich called president obama the food stamp president because we had a program working to help people in the recession. he is the food stamp president, that's great. although, and food stamps were raised in the recovery act, the stimulus legislation, and that was a very, very good thing. now, why did they go up? because people had a legal right to get that when they went into the office to apply, had to be done. welfare, now temporary assistance for needy families, tanf, no longer a legal right. go in, you look healthy, you look like you can work, they can say whatever they want, there'si no obligation to do that. in the recession, tanf went up from 3.9 million people to 4.9 million, 500,000 people here, 20 million over there. huh? what do we have now? well, the state of wyoming wins the prize. 617 people in the entire state of wyoming, moms and kids, 4% of the poor children in wyoming are getting tanf. unbelievable. 25 states now, six more since i started writing the book, have under 20% of the poor kids. no wonder people are in deep poverty. it was run in the new "new york times" in
. and as -- [applause] i left to value office, president obama said, you know, if bob dole or newt gingrich had been here,
to emulate senator kennedy and thus enable obama's reelection. one could easily say newt gingrich made a mighty contribution to reelecting bill clinton. in 1996 by giving him a welfare bill that he was surprised to discover that clinton would sign. it may be the weakness of the candidacy would have doomed to regardless but in many ways the election was over. that kennedy embrace so-called welfare reform and republican legislation that was passed. what we learned in american politics was americans fixate on the president and blame warm praise the president for what ever happens. congress gets very little credit or more to the point of a presidential candidate of the opposition congress that works well with a president gets very little credit for their good sportsmanship. what they do is to re-elect the incumbent president. one cannot blame mitch mcconnell for does siring not to re-elect a democratic president. what one can blame is the flavors in 1787 and others to fail to recognize the implications of developing a basically parliamentary party structure in a system of so-called checks
for romney and santorum and ron paul and newt gingrich, up until super tuesday they had spent a total of all the candidates of $53 million. and that one weekend they raise $100 million. they are huge to they will say and they will do anything. of course, it's a lot easier for the now since citizens united because you're not on raise unlimited corporate money but you don't have to report which corporations obtained which bills. but they also couldn't do it wi
that is not technically the newt gingrich campaign. that's fiction i think will disappear by the next year. so that they will be able to give directly to the campaign. because i think, you know, that's where they are going. >> [inaudible] >> this is a question on a lighter side. i'm just wondering if you could tell us a little bit about what it's like to be a guest on "morning joe"? [laughter] >> you know, this just kills me. i'm a guest. i'm an employee of cnn. i was on "morning joe" wants, like, our rating so terrible that you can't ask me what it's like to be on cnn? [laughter] i mean, i know our ratings are not that good, but i mean, so terrible. what an awful question. [laughter] i used to get all the time, was anderson cooper really like? he's a great guy. what's it like being on "morning joe"? it was fine. it was very nice. i mean, as i say, i fully been on once. i was on this week i guess, and you know, i don't know. they seem like nice people. [laughter] >> good evening. thank you for your presentation. it was wonderful. chief justice rehnquist was in his mid '70s when he used the mor
that happened late last year during which you had mitt romney, newt gingrich commander santorum all agree enthusiastically that when the immigration reform to attract more high skilled immigrants. and kept asking them, what about the border? there were having this conversation about themselves and it was completely ignored. it sounded like a border is said to me. and of course mitt romney give a speech about immigration reform that was oriented around family reunification and more skilled vises. and -- and utterly marginal issue. the most recent years that we have data for you have more immigration, more skilled immigration than you do less. also, you have more representation from asia than you do let america. that doesn't necessarily mean any kind of the changed. he's not hearing terribly well. yet it is also true that the immigration debate is our friend in some ways was some of us and its friends and others by others. i think that's important to keep in mind, particularly as the composition of that continues to change. i guess i see these questions a little more differently in that i s
campaign that happened last year during which you have mitt romney, new gingrich and rick santorum agree enthusiastically we need immigration reform to attract more high skilled immigrants and they kept asking what about the border? literally they were having a little conversation about the bill, and then it was completely ignored because that doesn't sound like a border of sense to me. then mitt romney gave a speech about immigration reform that was oriented of facilitating the family unification and also for skilled visas etc. this is a marginal issue yet interestingly in the most recent years that we have data, you have more immigration, more skilled immigration than less skilled and also more presentation from asia than latin america. that doesn't mean any kind of change and it doesn't mean that mitt romney isn't doing well with the voters, yet it is also true that the immigration the date is framed in some ways and framed and others, it's important to keep in mind particularly as the composition of the population changes. i guess i see these questions are differently in that i see t
and newt gingrich are at the center for american progress. i want to thank you for joining us. for the past, rogue demographics, economics and voter registration, voter ideology in the 2012 election. and i want to wish you all paid happy voter registration day. i'm sure everyone in this room s registered to vote. this is being cohosted by two fantastic teams. if we are just a few weeks before the election and i know that may seem like a very short time but in politics it's a lifetime. we were interested in taking down into what is actually happening in the states. what trends were occurring, how do people feel about economy and the current state of affairs, and most importantly who are the people who actually show up at the polls in november. we wanted to have a follow-up discussion about economics, demographics and implications for 2012. this is a follow up to the practice released in november of last you. .co office wanted to see what a change in the past year and what, if anything, it would mean for the presidential election. so with that kind pleased to introduce my colleagues. after hi
's an accident. the climate of the world is changing. the only plan elt so far we live in unless gingrich is right and we'll have a colony on the moon. as long as we are here, we have to whatever we can do save the planet. we have to ensure that our air is clear. do we not want to have clean air. of course we go. there were so many emergency air quality i can't count how many here in the richmond. i think the same way around the state. we have to look at the regulations to see if they hurt the coal industry as much as you say they are. we have one of the best fields off of coast for here for wind farm. why aren't we trying to invest our money in wind farms or solar? i mean the sun the there for the next 90 million or billion years. npr one night. why aren't we doing what we can recycle and reuse. the days of the fossil fuels are numbered. whether we look at what's happening in the middle east or not. we have the national security issues related to the access to oil and we will ultimately have national security issues with regard to access to coal. if anyone is seeing anybody interviewed i
gingrich really pushed the library to make thomas and al all of that information available to the public. and as we started this, both during the transition, last time around and going forward through this congress, i think speaker, later cancer and, frankly, the republican congress as a whole has tried to lead on transparency issues, and this made him a priority. this god manifested any number of different ways during our rules package the most notably was the rules change which said for the first time in history of the republic that paper and electronic versions of a document were equivalent. that if something was available electronically it was as good as if it had been printed by the government printing office, stuck on a truck, delivered over here and then distributed to individual offices. there were other things we did, mandatory webcasting kind would push committee to do that, maximum extent practical. we also as part of the effort to make electronic text available, you know, serve as a place where they could measure our own efforts to comply with 3-d rule. we created docks at ho
gingrich really push the library to make comments and all that information available to the public. as we started plastering the transition last time around and going forward through this congress, i think the speaker, the reader can cantor and the republican congress as a whole has tried to clean on transparency issues and made them a priority. this not manifested in a number of different ways during our rules package, most notably was the rules change, which set for the first time in the history of the republic that paper document and electronic brake weblog. if something was available electronically, it was as good as if it had been printed by the government printing office, stuck in a truck, delivered here and distributed to offices. there are other things we did, mandatory webcasting, try to really push committees to do that, maximum extent practical. we also as part of the effort to make it tronic taxed available and measure around the first to comply with the three day rule. we created house.gov, centralized portal in the coming week. so far, for all of this year, that has been onl
. we had a government shut down. newt gingrich i clinton. once the government shut down, the pressure on both sides was so intense there was a deal in less than three weeks. the pressure, if we go into january, will be far greater than it was then because the economic consequences and the market consequences are more significant. i think it's inconceivable that if we go into january, there won't be a settlement in january, early february at the latest. we hit the debt ceiling in february anyway. there has to be a settlement. somebody has to blink, probably both sides blink to some degree. i've talked a little bit to people in financial markets in new york about how they think the markets would react to all of this. the reaction i've got is there's a lot of nervousness, a lot of volatility in the markets in january. if there is a deal in a few weeks, and any deal clearly makes retroactive to january 1st, the tax cuts continued, and we'll remove sequesteration, then what i'm told is in the interim the damage really won't be that significant. now, for fiscal hawks, many of us have been s
gingrich was talking about. spent another question. recently one of mitt romney's operatives made a statement to reporters when they're pushing him on the claim about, well, it's our most effective at and we're not going to have our campaign dictated by fact checkers. i think a lot of probably naÏve news editors were rather shocked at the cynicism that they heard coming out of this polltakers mouth. so my question, you've been around the longest, were you shocked? did this surprise you? >> i really can't say that it was because, you know, they had kind of behavior that way all along. they are certainly not terribly worried. they're not worried enough to change the rhetoric when something is pointed out to them. and in speed do you mean the romney campaign's we? campaign's? >> now. >> [inaudible] >> this is -- my take on this, i'm in the context of that question and answer was actually they were saying that this is the most effective ad, and john of abc said that got four pinocchios, so the response as well, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. and wh
since the mid-90s when speaker gingrich really pushed the library to make comments and all of that information available to the public. and as we started this, both during the transition, the last time around and going forward through this congress, i think the speaker, leader cancer and frankly the republican conference as a whole is try to lead on transparency and his made it a priority. this got manifested god manifested in a number of different ways during most notably was the rules change which said for the first time in the history of the republic that paper and electronics versus the document were equivalent and if something was available electronically, it was as good as if it would have been printed by the government renting office, stuck on a truck delivered over here and distributed to individual offices. there were other things we did, mandatory webcasting, trying to really push committees to do that, at the maximum extent practicable. we also as part of the effort to make electronic text available and to serve as a place where we could measure our own efforts t
with newt gingrich. we have to get back to that context when it is not about political party but taking care of people and moving forward. leadership is not about blame. it is the house's fall for the president's fault. leadership is about rolling up your sleeves and locking yourself in a room and leading by example. congress has not been able to come of with a budget in 2,000 days. that is ridiculous. let's come up with a budget. there is legislation that is bipartisan. no budget no pay legislation says if congress doesn't do its job and have a responsible budget they don't get paid. that is a step in the right direction. my pledge is i will co-sponsor that legislation which is bipartisan and holds congress accountable for doing with their job which is passing a budget and they haven't done it in 2,000 days. has the no budget no pay legislation. >> the question is about compromise. give us another ec would be willing to compromise on. bera: there are many of us who thing no child left behind is going in the wrong direction. i will stand against my own party and the president. i don't think
